Senator Schumer’s office called to congratulate us on our award of $100,064 to provide employment services to homeless veterans! We were one of 2 new grantees in New York City selected in this national competition.
Did you know 107,000 veterans are homeless on any given night, and 45% of veterans need help getting a job?
The press release stated:
These recipients are familiar with the geographic areas and populations to be served, and have demonstrated that they can provide effective help to homeless veterans
Funding will expand the reach of our Next Step Employment Program to homeless veterans: we will offer vocational counseling, job training, and job placement services to help vets get back to work!
